It is impossible to trace the exact origins of the abacus, but it is known to have existed for centuries before the rise of the Hindu-Arabic numeral system. In fact, its development is often associated with the establishment and spread of the ancient network of trade routes that became known as the Silk Road.

On the reverse of 2019 2 oz Antique Silver Tuvalu Abacus Coins is the image of traders and their goods moving along the Silk Road. This vast network of trade routes is believed to have given rise to the abacus as a means for traders to calculate the volume of goods bought, sold, and traded along the way. The Silver Road spanned 64,000 kilometers and connected China with ports as far away as France and England via land through Russia and continental Europe.
In the design on this side, there are clay pots full of grains, fragrances, spices, textiles, fruit, and paper all depicted on the surface surrounding the central piece: a working abacus. You’ll also notice traders on camels traversing the network.
The obverse of 2019 Antique Silver Tuvalu Abacus Coins features the fourth-generation depiction of Queen Elizabeth II. Surrounding the abacus in the center of this design field are counting beads such as those that would be used on an abacus.
